Family law is all I do. I have served Western Oregon since 1981 specializing in this field of practice at every level of the Oregon State court system.
Most lawyers practice in a variety of fields of law. As a result, it is very difficult for them to keep fully informed about the law in any single area of practice. By limiting my practice to Family Law only, I enjoy the luxury of being able to dedicate all of my time toward maximizing my knowledge and expertise in Family Law. I personally summarize and catalog all of the rulings from the Oregon Supreme Court and Court of Appeals that relate to Family Law issues. I also keep track of Family Law cases and trends across the United States. As a result I have the most thorough Family Law database in the State of Oregon. Lawyers throughout Oregon seek me out for consultation regarding legal issues and tactics in Family Law cases. My clients benefit greatly from this specialization.
